CII has been playing a pioneering role in facilitating the accelerated development of infrastructure in India. Towards this, one of the key initiatives of CII is Excon – Global Exhibition and Conferences on Construction Equipment & Technology. This event is South Asia’s Largest event for the sector. Large Industry Conferences addressing Infrastructure, Defence, MSME, Components, Green Buildings, Smart Cities, Urban Development, Logistics, etc will be organised concurrently as part of Excon 2022.
Excon 2022, presently in its 11th Edition would feature more than 1250 companies including 350 exhibitors from 25 countries. The previous edition of this biennial initiative organised in 2017 featured 918 exhibitors including 226 exhibitors from abroad and was spread over an area of 26,00,000 square feet.
Being in the 11th edition, EXCON is keen to explore the current relationship between Infrastructure as a sector and its inclusion of women in the workspace.
We hope to initiate this dialogue through special initiatives launched at the EXCON 2022, titled “Women Building India”. One part of the initiative is the Women Building India- Equal Opportunity Awards.
